Here is an unusual view of Silver Oak Cellars and it's iconic water tower which is not normally this visible whilst driving along the Oakville Crossroad. There has been a lot of bulldozing activity of late in many vineyards. Given that harvest is well and truly over, now is the time that winegrowers begin the process of replanting a vineyard. Not many people realise that the vines that grow in front of Silver Oak are not Silver Oak's vineyards. No, they belong to Flora Springs. (Silver Oak grow their Cabernet sauvignon up in Soda Canyon). And Flora Springs has apparently decided to replant their Oakville vineyard. And I will get to witness the whole process. Fun.
